Artsy gays open festival season on Ponce

Add this share

There’s something special about festival season in Atlanta. Warm weather, packed parks and lots of artsy stuff to bring out the gays. Welcome back, gay-organized Festival on Ponce.

The event, held April 13-14, survived a bout of rain to show off its arts and crafts in historic Olmsted Linear Park. It’s a twice-a-year weekend of fun from the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, which is led by partners Patrick Dennis and Randall Fox.

But the festival festivities didn’t stop last weekend. The pair turned their attention to the Sandy Springs Artsapalooza on April 20-21. The Fall Festival on Ponce returns Oct. 19-20.
